Lately I was kinda affected by a Steampunk fever… I have no clue why, but each part of my body wanted to do something steampunk. Kara Trapdoor did even more throw me in that direction, when she IMed me, asking if I would like to be part of a steampunk exhibit done by bloggers. This wonderful exhibit started on the 4th of May 2014 and many of amazing bloggers made incredible pictures of steampunk sims, gear and fashion.

In SL I did not find too many steampunk designs so I decided this could be a reason to make some things, how I would imagine steampunk.
I started with a gown, the “Araminta” steampunk gown. When I finished it, in my view it looked a bit too elegant and I decided the gown has to have a jacket with it.
When the gown was finished, the more I looked at it, the more I wanted a hat for it. I started with a simple top hat and added more and more gear and a head band closed in the back, until I was satisfied with it. To match the color of the gown was not that easy and took me quite some time and cursings but in the end it worked out :p .
The glasses I am wearing are made by Crie Style, one of the most skilled designer if it comes to glasses and eye wear.
Gown, Hat… so what s missing? The gown can be worn as a long and wide and a short and tight version, so I decided to make some neat booties matching both of the dresses even if they only can be seen with the short version 😉 .
The “Araminta” steampunk gown and jacket comes in the 5 usual standart sizes plus the needed alpha layers. The normal prims of each of the 3 designs are either mod, or have a resizer so that you can make sure to make it fit your avatar.
I hope you liked my little steampunk journey and all of the items are now available at the Wicca’s Wardrobe Mainstore 🙂 (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New/96/141/22)
I would LOVE to know more about the monocle worn with your tophat. I’ve poured through Crie style’s monocles hoping it was their creation, but alas it seems not to be.
Hello 🙂 The eye piece is from Crie Style called “Guildio” and it should be in the main store of Crie Style still 🙂
Yay! got it, thank you! I wasn’t at the main store, at first, but managed to finally find it yesterday. 🙂
